When all else fails, find a “death threat”

I’M not worried about the so-called “death threats” which Queensland’s governing class – the chummy, COVID-hysterical, them-against-us Karenclatura of police, medical “officials,” journalists and Annastacia Palaszczuk – has suddenly invented to silence criticism of unctuous virus czar Jeanette Young. We’ve seen “death threats” used before – usually on behalf of women – to flip a news cycle and turn a blunderer into a martyr. The gender card is now strictly for plonkers. Real women hide behind “death threats.” The NSW Blues were at greater risk in Caxton Street than the CHO will ever be. Carriage services should not be misused to frighten people – on that all reasonable people agree. But just because a righteously angry citizen expresses contempt for Queensland’s daffy duumvirate in imprudently colourful terms doesn’t mean the latter are in danger. Here is footage of Julie Bishop being violently mobbed at Melbourne University in 2014. The ABC’s reporter, Lisa Tucker, described the then Foreign Minister’s most willing assailant as a “gentleman.”

Justifiably under pressure for mindless authoritarianism – to say nothing of a trooper’s willingness to advertise “our strong response” to the “pandemic” for the ALP until election day – Young has been grating the nerves of Queenslanders for months. Just when she was starting to be held to account over her cold-hearted handling of interstate border exemptions, she conveniently became the Salman Rushdie of Australian public life: “police officers outside her home and with her everywhere she goes.” I’m sure this personal bodyguard makes Young feel immune to both imaginary assassins and – more importantly – accountability but I’m not the only one who isn’t genuinely worried about her safety. Queensland Police aren’t bothered either. The man charged yesterday with making death threats online against Young and Palaszczuk has not been held in custody but was issued a breezy Notice To Appear in the Southport Magistrates Court on October 7.

The cartoon: Health Minister Dr Steven Miles (a doctor of trade unions) says it’s a “new low.”

    Qld’s public health emergency declaration expires on 2 October.

    We await with ‘bated breath to see whether it is extended…which will be quite a trick given that nobody actually seems to be ill.

    FFS what a bunch of precious ‘individuals’ inhabit Queensland. Placechook and her side kick have pretty much destroyed the tourism industry in Queensland singlehandedly. Lucky they’ve still got Adani or there’d be no new employers in the state at all.

  3. Hay Stockard.

    The Leftards. So super sensitive. And bullshit artists . They are the ones of threats and bullying. They make me sick with their projections.

  4. H B Bear

    Just like those IPA ones on the ALPBC?

  5. John Bayley

    …nobody actually seems to be ill.

    That ceased to be any obstacle to the rapid implementation of the New-Totalitarian Australia quite early in the whole scamdemic saga.

    …there’d be no new employers in the state at all.

    Never fear: We will soon all ‘work’ for the government.
    So it won’t matter.

  6. H B Bear

    You need an illness for a public health crisis? How quaint.

  7. Epidermis

    Has Anna lost a lot, lot of weight or did the artist run out of paint? Reminds me of Shakespeare’s opening of Macbeth although the horse would have to be the third witch.

  8. Some History

    “… police officers outside her home and with her everywhere she goes.”

    Driving Miss Crazy.

    “John-Paul Langbroek is a medical professional,” Mr Hinchliffe said. “It beggars belief he would undermine his own profession by endorsing ridiculous, unscientific, far-right conspiracy theories.”

    What’s “ridiculous”, “unscientific” and especially “far-right conspiracy” about the cartoon in question? Everything seems undeniable, with the possible exception of COVID IS ONLY A MILD FLU.

    It’s just a list of the standard retorts that lefties use against anyone who disagrees with them…about anything.

  10. H B Bear

    As I have said before, Covid is the most politicised disease since the big lie that we were all going to die from AIDS.

    Until a few politicians start losing elections that won’t change.

    LOL. Pay that.

  12. I remember ANU staff cowering in fear when someone said they had received their license to shoot kangaroos. It was reported as death threats to climate scientists.

  13. I just Googled Jeanette Young and was kind of gobsmacked. Every, single, woman in recent history that is of Leftist bent, looks the same. The facial features and hair style (especially) is almost identical. You can go through Australian or overseas politicians, public servants, you name it. they are almost clones.

    If you’re going to kill someone, you don’t tell them beforehand.

    Death threats are only made by people that aren’t going to kill.

  15. yarpos

    “Carriage services should not be misused to frighten people – on that all reasonable people agree.”

    How would you categorise the Dan Andrews daily press conference then? scaring people seems to be its primary purpose. That and drowning the MSM junior journos in minutia so they dont focus on dishonesty and governance failure.

  16. Struth

    I get a death threat every few days.
    Then I mow the lawn and maybe make dinner, and I seem to survive.

  17. Dave in Marybrook

    Good cartoon. Not every artist can be as pithy as a Leak, but there’s no reason to pull punches.
    And it’s telling that although the Karenklatura are flat-out trying to find a domestic violence epidemic to match the Wuhan Shutdown’s increased cohabitation between beastly men and frail women, the word suicide is verboten.

  18. Nice cartoon but it’s based on a complete lie.

    In Victoristan the suicide rates have escalated significantly over previous years. That’s a fact.

  19. In Victoristan the suicide rates have escalated significantly over previous years. That’s a fact.

    No spike in suicide rates in Victoria during COVID-19 lockdowns, coroners court figures show

    Why do you lot persist with completely obvious lies? Is it because you are stupid?

  20. Mustapha Bunn

    Trouble is,Monty,no one believes anything official any more … except for those who hate Trump of course.

  21. Ed Case

    ***Good cartoon. Not every artist can be as pithy as a Leak, but there’s no reason to pull punches.***
    It’s pithier than anything Leak has done in the Australian so far.

  22. monty disproves QLD figures with a VIC bureaucrat’s report?

    Yes. He also accused you of lying.

  23. egg_

    This is the result of having a Karenocracy in charge – just like Victoria.

    Women who look like men who look like old lesbians?

  25. Rex Anger

    Why do you lot persist with completely obvious lies? Is it because you are stupid?

    Why do you waste your time on Catallaxy, mUnted?

    With projection skills like these, I think any cinema owner in Viktoristan would be blessed to have you.

    Why, with your unquestioning support of almighty LockDan, I am sure you could get reclassified as an Essenshul Wukka, and get protected employment at your local Hoyts…

  26. Hay Stockard

    A lot of barren women should never be allowed near the levers of power.

    WHO’s been plugging the snake oil since March.

    Very expensive selling out one’s Economy for same.

  28. Spurgeon Monkfish III

    Pluckachook and Dr Dung must be even stupider than they appear if it never occurred to them that destroying millions of peoples’ lives and livelihoods (over absolutely nothing) might make some the of the latter extremely angry.

    At the very least those two utterly vile slags deserve to spend the rest of their pointless existences languishing in gaol.

  29. Annie

    A great cartoon. Would the artist consider producing a Victorian version? Please.

  30. Steve

    Spurgeon Monkfish III,

    Yes but they are all set up with what appears to be paramilitary police, precisely because they are hoping people *will* have a crack at them.

    Mind you, they cant shoot everyone…..I suspect the people will eventually just turn on whoever the Dictator of Victoriastan is at the time….could get ugly…

    If things gety really bad in Victoria with the plebs demanding theor freedoms back , I predict either a full blown war with China will conveniently break out, and under its cover people in Victoria may start to “disappear”, or, the NWO will release a new nasty bug to allow full sociopathic crack down on all dissent using the shiny new “reasonably expect” / thougth crime law , what I am going to call the new “Fingerman Law” ….
